Mexican Fiesta Bake

READY IN: 40mins
Recipe by vicki winchester

This recipe is a favorite of my whole family; even the child who hates meat. I like to experiment with different cheeses or different salsas. I think there are supposed to be 6 servings in this dish but because everyone has seconds it serves 5 with no leftovers. For more servings increase to 1 1/2 lb beef and increase corn bread to 2 boxes and cheese accordingly. Bake in 9x9 or larger casserole dish.

Vicki, first I would like to say that I am pleased to be giving your your first review on the very first recipe you posted! We really enjoyed this recipe! I made it for dinner last night and the leftovers are calling me from the frige! One note to others that try this recipe, be careful of the size of cornbread mix you use! The one I bought was too big for this recipe. I could have doubled the meat mixture and it would have worked well. But all in all, this is a quick yummy recipe that works well for a "middle of the week" dinner for busy people who work alot!
